Reading Baseball: Fidel Castro

Jan 13, 2017

Longtime Cuban leader Fidel Castro passed away in November at the age of 90.

Like many of his countrymen and women, Castro loved baseball and by some accounts almost became a professional ballplayer in the U.S.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us about how some of Castro's baseball exploits are the subject of great debate.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, the author of Pops: The Willie Stargell Story and Growing Up With Clemente.
